This was an amazing tour and well worth cost. Nijo Castle was very interesting to tour and the Golden Pavillion was beautiful in the sunlight the day we toured. The Japanese gardens are outstandingly beautiful!
We would highly recommend this tour if you have a short stay in Kyoto. Enjoyed every part and the guide was very informative. Learnt a lot on this tour, which included a variety of historical sites, and a bit of shopping.
Kyoto brobably the most interesting Japanise city.Full of history.The city is a must to see.
If you lucky you can see geishas too.
Great tour guide, easy to find location for the bus. Good information explained at each of the four sites we visited as well as a good lunch served. Not enough time allowed at the last stop (shopping district) because the tour had one family that needed to get back to the train depot earlier than the tour was scheduled. This small group had traveled from another city for this tour...through a travel company arrangement. Made our last stop more than an hour shorter than we had been told at the out-set. Then no time for the rest of the 35-40 folks on the tour to visit the small shops as had been "promised" near the last site. We never did find a way to get back to that area, but did "manage" to buy plenty of Japanese gifts.
Wonderful tour. Suzuki is a knowledgable and good tour leader. I would recommend this tour to anyone coming to Kyoto.
Excellent tour! We definitely packed it in going all over the city; there is absolutely no way we could have done this all on our own. In addition, our tour leader, Hiromi, was great! She was very knowledgeable and friendly, and she had great anecdotes along the way to keep things interesting. Highly recommended!
This tour is really well-organized. I really enjoyed every trip with Viator. Moreover, the lunch was fantastic!
This tour was terrific, and the guide was outstanding. The balance of travel time to sight-seeing time was terrific.
This was the highlight of one week in Japan. Excellent value. The guide spoke fluent iEnglish and had full mastery of her topics. There is no way to add anything to the photos and descriptions from others. One thing to keep in mind about these kinds of tours: everything is rushed. It is always hurry up and wait. That is the problem with herding 30 cats. If you have a problem with that, then you may want to organize private tours.
